I have mentioned in previous posts that kids will to eat just about anything if you put it on a stick!
These lemony salt and pepper prawn skewers are no exception… H loved them and I loved that they were easy, effortless and ready in 15 minutes.
The prawns are sprinkled with a lemony salt and pepper mixture and cooked on the BBQ for a few minutes. You could add whatever herbs and spices you like. If serving as finger food the dressing is optional but does add an extra hit of lemony goodness. As a main serve alongside rice and roughly chopped mint.

For the lemon sesame dressing:
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp lemon juice

Soak skewers in water for 10 minutes minimum. Peel and devein the prawns, leaving the tails intact. Thread onto the skewers.
Combine the salt, pepper and lemon zest in a small bowl and sprinkle over the prawns. Brush a BBQ or grill plate with olive oil and cook the prawns over hight heat until cooked through. A few minutes each side is perfect.
Serve immediately drizzled with the lemon sesame dressing if using.
